Phishing

Phishing for your W&M password. Don't take the bait!Bogus emails are often sent claiming to be from W&M IT asking for your WMuserid password.  This is called phishing and it is NOT a legitimate request.  Don't take the bait!   IT will NEVER ask for your WMuserid password.  Forward phishing emails to abuse@wm.edu.

If you are suspicious of a possible phishing attempt, you should change your password. You can also learn about the signs of phishing on our password security page.
